Bad analysis because dividend in gold stocks is always low and FNV is a high growing stock and very solid investment in the long run.

@Croogie So let's take a look at dividend yields of some of them: Barrick Gold - 1.53%, Agnico Eagle Mines - 2.05%, Kirkland Lake Gold -1.9%, etc. Although not high, they are much higher than Franco-Nevada's dividend yield. And Franco-Nevada can hardly be marked as high-growth stock, as it projects its gold equivalent sales to grow only by 10% over the next 5 years.
@Peter Arendas Let's also look @safety. FNV is a royalty company--not a mining co. Also NO DEBT.
Slow & steady rise over the yrs. Great inflation protection.

@golfcat1 You're right, but Croogie mentioned gold stocks, not royalty stocks.
